We make our own cabbage rolls, and we're making some tomorrow. I don't want to over indulge, but when we make these we tend to eat them for breakfast lunch and dinner. Obviously I will not be doing this. I would like to be able to eat two a day, but if I can only have one, I will. I say this because I don't know how many calories it is.
I figured this:
1 leaf of cabbage- 8 calories (it's wrapped in 1 large cabbage leaf)
1 cup of tomato juice- 45 calories (it's boiled in tomato juice)
There's some rice in there, too, but it's so small I don't know if I'm even going to attempt to count it.
then it's made by mixing ground beef and ground pork together. I figured 1 cup of ground beef at 312 calories, and the pork at 227. But it's combine, so should I cut each number in half, then add them together to get the estimated total? Or should I just round up, over-calculate to be sure?
For the most part I get calorie counting, but when we make our own things it gets difficult for me to figure it out. And it's sort of a big deal, because we make 2 big pots and that can last us a week.
